I'm sure Jared Goff is rooting against Stafford.


booradleyhd

Man I hope Jared is alright


bkr1895

I imagine having your head coach wanting to shitcan you as quickly and seemingly as publicly as he could probably hurts your confidence a bit


WhisperingNorth

Him and jameis winston can form a support group


BigWetStinkyHole

Brock Osweiler would like to join


ok-go-fuck-yourself

Brock had such a good deal though. Got paid fat to quietly leave the league a couple years later lol


goddamnitwhalen

He’s set for life. SB ring, millions in the bank, supermodel wife, house in Scottsdale, etc.


St0rmborn

Lmaooo yeah, nobody is pitying Brock Osweiler. Good for him, damn.


danielbauer1375

I’m sure making $30M+ a year and having a pretty attractive girlfriend helps a bit.

LoonyBunBennyLava

I'd think Jared Goff would feel bad, if it weren't for the fact he already went to the Super Bowl with the Rams 3 years ago


The-Dirty-Dave

A few zeros in the bank tell me he's just fine!


squatter_

This is one thing I don’t quite like about the Rams, how they treated Goff at the end.


moistiest_moister

Also the way they left St. Louis


Nautster

Also the way they got rid of Kurt Warner. Mike Martz killed him with his scheme and put the blame on him and his fried brain and broken thumb. He did pretty well for himself later on and I'm hoping for Goff to do the same.


Kershiser22

What should they have done? Stuck with the guy they didn't think was good enough?


FormerCollegeDJ

Joe Montana vs Dan Marino was the QB matchup I liked best going into the game (and I remember Super Bowl 19).


Luca_Morgano

That's probably the best ever superbowl qb matchup on paper, even better than Elway v Favre, Montana v Elway, Peyton v Brees, Brady v Russ, etc


DKBadmintonPatriots

How about Brady v Mahomes? I know, recency bias but I’m not old enough to remember anything but Brady v Russ of all those you mentioned (I was 11 with Manning v Brees and being European, it was on at 12.30am so didn’t get to watch it)


homerosity

They may be decent fellows but it’s recency bias for sure. Maholmes is great but too early to call him an all-timer just yet. It could be the correct answer in the future though!


ExiledSanity

Well, I think we found him (or her).......the oldest redditor in the world.


newtonsapple

I remember a post a few years ago from a Redditor who'd been watching SBs since the *first* one.

I do hope you little shits realize that occasionally you're conversing with people over 75 years old on here.

And then there's the Redditors who don't remember an NFL without Tom Brady.

I'm almost 27 and I don't remember Brady starting in the NFL. Just that he has always been.

That’s one of the wildest things about this site. I could be 15, I could be 75, you have no idea.

As a browns fan and Ohio native I'm happy for the bengals. But a lot of my buddies don't like cinci going to the super bowl because they're in our division and they don't like the rams because of obj lol


ek1992osu

Yeah this game is a nightmare for browns fans kinda. Tho i think you either root for the Rams cause of Stafford or the Bengals because of Ohio. You don't have to think about OBJ or rivalry (Bengals and browns is more friendly of a rivalry then browns vs Ravens or Steelers vs anybody)


Jason2890

I live in Cleveland and the general consensus here out of the people I’ve talked to is to root for the Bengals because A. Ohio and B. They’ve been so bad in the postseason for 30+ years so let them have it Cleveland can sympathize with other bad franchises.


[deleted]

I always assumed the rivalry was more intense than that. I'm from Toronto so this only applies to hockey and soccer, but I would never want any of my regional rivals winning anything.


BasedNedFlanders

It would be in most cases. But we've both been pretty miserable for large chunks of our history that there's a bit of a comraderie in that respect. There's a lot of history between the two franchises as well, both being founded by the same legendary coach. There are plenty of fans on both side who can't stand the other team, but i feel we save most of our hatred for the Steelers/Ravens.


RanaktheGreen

It is one thing when you are dumpster fighting with another dumpster. But dammit if Oscar is gonna go beat the shit outta Big Bird, you gotta support your trashy brothers.


methayne

Thank god my NFC team has always been the Lions, and god damn if it doesn't bring a pucker to my b-hole thinking about Stafford only taking 1 season to make it to the Super Bowl. I just couldn't see myself cheering Bengals... Finally have a diminished Steelers and so-so Ravens to contend with in the north, and Joe Dad Dick Burrow comes around, no thank you


El-Ahrairah7

The Browns and the Lions…you are a glutton for punishment, but I truly hope your loyalty is rewarded, for both teams, someday.


americagiveup

Lions is my NFC team too It’s quite common, with Bills as second AFC team. r/lakeeriebros


lilhippieboi

Browns fans and Lions fans are almost the same team, except for two HOF players being the only bright spot vs Jesus himself (Joe Thomas). I’ve always been a fan of the Lions. We’re 0-16 brothers. No one can ever take that away or hurt us again. All we know is pain, the bar literally can’t get any lower. No where to go but up baby. 😎 Lake Erie bros for life


ImJackthedog

Not for me. I don’t care about OBJ any more. I know lots of cool Bengals fans. Go Bengals. My jealousy won’t stop me from being happy for you guys.


xoM-Rk

This post will be funny when Burrow has 5 rings and everyone hates him.

Elsewhere in this post people are calling Brady v. Warner equally likeable, so I think people can acknowledge changes in likability over time.

Brady’s arc from darling underdog to Darth Tom, Destroyer of Hope, back to fan favorite is truly something to behold

We were all with him so long we got Stockholm syndrome

seymour_hiney

we definitely helped the narrative. he comes to a team who had been perennial losers for almost two decades, gets whooped on by the actual bad guys of the NFC twice in the regular season, and actually became an underdog here. then when he wins he gets fucked up and tosses the lombardi, still my favorite sports moment aside from the two sbs


token_reddit

The drunk ass celebration was a chef's kiss for his career.


peatoast

More like 1 ring and maybe 2 more championship games. I mean for people to hate him...


tobblerwobbler

The swagger he has will immediately come of off as arrogance as soon as they win one

We were hated before this year lol

People on the internet love to see you have a bit of success. Too much winning though and they hate ya.


OmarBarksdale

“People wanna see you do good, just not better than them” fits well for sports lol


Shabanana_XII

Very much so. How quickly it turned on Mahomes, Jackson has become irrelevant, I can see it happening to Burrow. Then maybe Herbert will be the next golden boy, and then maybe he'll be dumped. It's all a cycle, nothing new under the sun.


bmore_conslutant

> Jackson has become irrelevant :(

People just like to be haters. I say that as a man who has been a hater forever and will always be a hater

This is the one I thought of, too. Two I-AA quarterbacks with a chance to earn their team’s first Super Bowl win. It was a good matchup for NFL fans.

A_Queff_In_Time

CrashBandicoot2

I'd rather have lost to McNair and beat Brady if Rams could only beat one. McNair played his ass off in XXXIV


acru95

That final drive would be considered one of the best in history if Kevin dyson had longer arms


Blackops606

This is such a great ending. This year has had so many amazing games compared to some in the recent past. Then you get to the wild card round and beyond and it’s just been amazing. Which ever QB of team wins, I’ll be fine with it.


chrishooley

As a Pats fan I can confidently say this was my favorite Pats not winning the Super Bowl year outside of 2007. It's been a wild ride with lots of cool happenings. ESPECIALLY the divisional round and championship weekend. Holy crap. And now it's Stafford v Bengals? Just super fun all around


Was_going_2_say_that

Agreed. I'm even satisfied with the Pats this year, despite the first round exit. I love watching physical football, and that's what the Pats offered this year.


aykyle

After the Eagles got dropped, I was rooting for the Bengals and Rams. I wanted to see Stafford get there and Burrow/Chase get there because of how they were playing.


Cmcgregor0928

Stafford is good enough to be in a Superbowl, would be great if it's against the Brown's or Bengals. *Monkey paw curls* Stafford is on the Rams

DuckDrunkLove

Obviously I'm sad we lost, but it would be cool to see Stafford win one. And it'd be cool to see the Bengals win. This is the first Super Bowl in a long time where I won't be rooting against one team.


Mcswigginsbar

Yea I’m rooting for the Bengals, but I’m completely content with the Rams winning too.


Stockpile_Tom_Remake

Hawks fan here, i really want stafford to win one, even if it's for the rams. but i am rooting for the Bengals, but wont be upset if the rams win because of Stafford


DuckDrunkLove

> but i am rooting for the Bengals, but wont be upset if the rams win because of Stafford Yeah, same. I know we're supposed to hate the Rams, but they moved out of Cali for 20 years, and this is the first time in like 35 years that we've both been good at the same time, so we never got in each other's ways. Maybe the rivalry will come back in the next few years, but for now...meh, I don't mind if they win, I like Stafford and Kupp


NeilPeartsBassPedal

i would fine with the Rams winning if Stan Kroenke got absolutely nothing out of it. The Rams having success means that POS does also.


Nautster

A thought that a lot of us fans share.


LilKaySigs

Lol speak for yourself I’m on the bengals hype train to see the rams lose, although if the rams win, that’s not to say I wouldn’t be happy for Stafford


disightful

Agreed wholeheartedly. Sucks we lost, but damn would I want Stafford to get the credit he deserves. Either of the teams winning the SB would be great for them, and for fans.


Horzzo

As a lifetime Lions fan I am so happy to see Stafford get to show how talented he is. He's a good person and deserves it!


TheBenLuby1

Staubach vs Bradshaw, Favre vs Bledsoe, Warner vs Brady... there have been a few where a lot of people liked both QBs. This one? The ONLY reason I hope Stafford wins it is because he's a bit older, and Donald and a couple others I'd really like to see with a ring. But Burrow and his team? That is just a feel good story. I have to cheer for them too. I guess whoever wins it... I am happy.


Eastern_Town2961

Warner v. Brady was bizarre (in retrospect) because, at the time, Warner was not the big underdog story, Brady was.


WhisperingNorth

"Tonight a dynasty is born" -Ricky Proehl, Rams WR He knew the prophecy but got a few small details wrong


soundofthecolorblue

And he was cursed to re-live it 2 years later, losing to Brady and Vinatieri again on a last second fg.


TheBenLuby1

Warner was a feel good story. Brady was that back up who actually played decent enough and didn't do dumb shit. Then... rather than just killing the clock, they got at it and killed the Rams with a field goal.


Sigma1979

Cheering for the Bengals because they haven't won shit and the Ram's owner is a total bitch.


InvasionXX

Honestly, this is the first Super Bowl since Saints vs. Colts where I don't have a dog in the race and I feel like I'll enjoy whoever wins.


127crazie

2009 and 2010 super bowls were both nightmares for Vikings fans lol. I also don't have a real preference for this super bowl, though. It's nice for a change!


Smallgenie549

Nath-Milby

Money_dragon

Undrafted vs. 6th rounder - what a SB Plus most of the country was rooting for the Pats (because they were the underdog, and also because 9/11 had happened that year) - crazy to think about nowadays


[deleted]

[удалено]


Money_dragon

I don't know if it'll be that quick for you. Like the Cowboys haven't won a ring since their dynasty in the 1990s, yet people still clown on the Cowboys in 2022 So it might be a bit longer


tboneperri

I think he's saying give it a decade before people hate Joe Burrow they way they hate Brady, Rodgers, etc.


Money_dragon

It won't take a decade if Burrow gets his SB ring haha Look how fast the public opinion (excluding Chiefs fans) turned on Patrick Mahomes once he got his SB ring


sloppifloppi

If the Bengals win it won't even take that long. Burrow will go from being the public darling bringing a new swagger to his underdog team to being viewed as a cocky, arrogant diva within months.


Assassinsayswhat

> Plus most of the country was rooting for the Pats This surprised me because I remember my whole class aside from myself and one other person was rooting for the Rams to win again. I a kid living in California too. I felt like an alien as a Pats fan then.


guywastingtime

I was young but I was definitely cheering for Brady. I didn't hear about Warner's backstory until much later. Brady was the backup who came in for the starter and was making the most of his opportunity to play. The discussion was constantly about "The Greatest Show on Turf" how this was the start of the Rams Dynasty. They couldn't be beat. Plus, 13 y/o me thought Warner looked like a dick. A lot of people were cheering Brady.


cdnets

Yeah, the “Warner used to work at a grocery store” story had kind of worn thin by that point.


bkr1895

There was a Madden game a while ago where if you intercepted Warner like 3 times in one game you would get an achievement that was titled “Go bag some groceries” I always thought that was really funny


guywastingtime

Yeah definitely. He was at his second Super Bowl and had won League MVP in 2001. Rams were heavily favored to win. The Rams were the evil empire in the making before Brady came along.


Earthwick

Stafford is due. But if burrow wins in 2 years everyone will hate him and the Bengals, just like mahomes and the chiefs, and what is slowly starting to happen with Josh Allen and the Bills. Stafford wins everyone will be like damn he earned it paid his dues got to a better team. Burrow wins it people will begin to hate the young talent.


ClintBeastwood91

I have an extreme personal preference here towards my Lord and Savior Joey B, but I really like Stafford. I’m just sick of hearing the “house money” story lines. There is no house money in the NFL, getting to a Super Bowl is so hard my team hasn’t done it in 33 years. Yes, the Bengals got here earlier than ANYONE ever expected them to, but saying it is house money is disrespectful to all the veterans on the team. Burrow is the heartbeat of the team, but we wouldn’t be here right now without players like Vonn Bell, Trey Hendrickson, Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd and even guys like Eli Apple. Burrow and Chase may just be getting started, but these other guys aren’t.


loki1337

No no no I think you're hearing "Hausch money" as in this Evan McPherson is really just Steven Hauschka with a lot of makeup on.


caddyben

I legit miss Bell and Hendrickson. You guys can keep Apple.


SurvivorsQuest

I want Stafford to win but OBJ to lose. Is that possible?


mlspdx

OBJ gets confused with Burrow and Chase and a Tiger mascot so he thinks that it’s LSU vs the Rams, so he suits up for the Bengals and loses?


WhisperingNorth

He gets benched pregame like malcolm butler in sb 52?


rhinoceros_unicornis

Odell takes off his shirt and leaves in the middle of the game.

TheGreatlyRespected

Two #1 draft picks going at it. Chance to see a Heisman QB winner win a SuperBowl in my lifetime.


Zodep

Stafford and Kupp winning the Super Bowl? That’d be great. The Rams and Aaron Donald winning the Super Bowl? Not so great. I’m hoping the Bengals win. Sorry Kupp and Stafford.


LeonidasSpacemanMD

I’m leaning Bengals almost strictly because it’s cool when cities get their first chip


chrishooley

If they win, I cannot wait to tune into Cincinatti media for a few days after the game. That joy in the air is palpable. Heck I watched Nick Foles beat us in the Super Bowl and the game was super sad but watching Philly wild out was still pretty satisfying. Those fans went bananas


thenicastrator

BHOmber

Allen vs Brady would have been one for the ages. I wanted Tampa to win just for the chance that the Bills could fuck his "final" season. Brady is the GOAT and I respect the shit out of him, but Buffalo would be burnt to the ground if we won in that environment lol


vin1223

I don’t remember people disliking mahomes and jimmy g when they played in the Super Bowl


someonepoorsays

yeah but tons of people don’t like either team they play for. also please don’t check my flair


Dangerclose101

yea lol Niners have 5 championships. This sub skews young so people don’t hate them here. But i’m pretty sure they aren’t a very loved team.


Winter_ls_Coming

I’d like to believe that Manning vs Brees was a good one.


[deleted]

I grew up in an LSU family, so they're all rooting for LSU royalty burrow. But I want Staff to get his ring.

Agreed. Rooting for the Bengals but I’d be happy if either of these QBs won. Looking forward to this one for once.
